the 4 banger isn't a mitsu engine. the 6 v6 is. the 4 banger is the 420a. The 420a is an interference engine. If you broke the timing belt, chances are you'll need to replace a bunch of things. Pistions and valves for example.

yes, looking at bent valves, pistons, possible connecting rods. I am unsure how he plans to do a compression check with the belt broke. Chances are that you have at least a bent valve, compression tests arnt nessesary, will be visible once the cylinder head comes off. This is when you ask yourself, do i really want this car anymore???
